UNDATED (Indiana's NewsCenter) - 228 million eggs are being recalled across the nation, linked to an outbreak of salmonella poisoning.

Officials with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say eggs from an Iowa producer are linked to several illnesses in at least three states.

The eggs were distributed around the country and packaged under more than a dozen names.

The recall affects eggs sold under the following brands: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms, and Kemps.
Be sure to check the dates and codes stamped on the end of the eggs carton.

The plant numbers affected are P-1026, P-1413, and P-1946. The dates (recorded in the "Julian format") range from 136 to 225, according to a statement by the Egg Safety Center. For example, eggs in a carton marked with the number P-1026 137 should not be eaten.

If you have bought any of the suspicious eggs consumers can get a refund if they return them in their original carton to the store where they were bought.
